Docked at Hunts Point, South Bronx, NYC in Long Island Sound, this 47,000-ton behemoth currently holds 870 inmates spread throughout 100 cells divided up into 16 dormitories. That’s averaging about 8 prisoners per cell!
Built in 1992 for $161 million dollars, this jail barge was needed as overflow incarceration space for Rikers Island Prison. Rikers has been the main prison compound for New York City since 1884. Rikers Island is 413acres and has a prison population of over 20,000 spread throughout 10 facilities which constitutes possibly the world’s largest penal colony.
As boating season starts here in the Great Lakes the USCG has put out statistics from accidents from 2014. It is a sobering report and there is never a reason to drink and drive! Always have a DD. Last year there were 97 accidents with 19 deaths. That is 19 too many!
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Coast Guard Wednesday released its 2014 Recreational Boating Statistics, revealing boating fatalities that year totaled 610, the second-lowest number of yearly boating fatalities on record.
From 2013 to 2014, deaths increased from 560 to 610, an 8.9 percent increase, injuries increased from 2,620 to 2,678, a 2.2 percent increase and the total number of accidents increased from 4,062 to 4,064, a 0.05 percent increase. Even with these increases as compared to the record low year of 2013, 2012 to 2014 collectively set record lows for accidents, deaths and injuries.
The fatality rate of 5.2 deaths per 100,000 registered recreational vessels reflected a 10.6 percent increase from the previous year’s rate of 4.7 deaths per 100,000 registered recreational vessels. Property damage totaled approximately $39 million.
“We thank our partners for their work in boating safety, particularly for the Wear It! and other key outreach initiatives promoting life jacket use, boating education efforts, and Operation Dry Water activities. Together, we focus on the important role of life jacket use, navigational knowledge and safe, sober boating to prevent accidents,” said Capt. Jon Burton, director of inspections and compliance at U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters.
The publication states alcohol use was the leading contributing factor in fatal boating accidents; it was listed as the leading factor in 21 percent of the deaths. Operator inattention, improper lookout, operator inexperience, excessive speed and alcohol use ranked as the top five primary contributing factors in accidents.
Where the cause of death was known, 78 percent of fatal boating accident victims drowned; of those drowning victims, 84 percent were not wearing a life jacket. Where boating instruction was known, 77 percent of deaths occurred on vessels where the operator had not received boating safety instructions. The most common types of vessels involved in reported accidents were open motorboats, personal watercraft and cabin motorboats. The vessel types with the highest number of fatalities were open motorboats, canoes and kayaks.
The Coast Guard reminds all boaters to boat responsibly while on the water: wear a life jacket; take a boating safety course; get a free vessel safety check; and avoid alcohol or other impairing substance consumption.
